I just found this amazing list of Terminal commands today:
The list is not customized for OS X systems, so not all of the commands or options necessarily work as listed. I was however able to find similar commands using the man pages. This list is really an amazing reference for commands to do practical things that you might not have known you could do.
I just discovered
wget using this list. I think I might have used this a long time ago and then promptly forgot it existed. Basically it downloads files or websites for you. This was exactly what I happened to need to download all of the student websites for my Web Design class. I was able to download all of them in a matter of minutes.
